This painting is one of 12 'Key' paintings. Lyrical expressions of 12 colours representing the sound of 12 keys - major and minor.
'Colour Ensembles' is music-in-paint journeying through Light, Sound, Form and Colour. Designed to excite all the senses, this collection of paintings represents the corresponding vibrations of colour alongside select sounds.
I draw inspiration from Kandinski's 'On the Spiritual in Art' colour correlation theories for abstract painting of colour and form. Interpreting the sensory impact of colour I like to combine shimmering brush stroke effects with elusive abstract forms. The result is a collision of sound and sight that brings to life the raw emotional experience of music, only splashed across the canvas.
Each painting is coated with a high gloss resin and framed in Tasmanian Oak timber.
